With the aim of studying frequency of aural symptoms and associations with symptoms of TMD new patients referred to the Orofacial Pain Clinic, Odontologen, Göteborg, were asked, at their first appointment and before meeting a specialist, to report any symptoms regarding pain or fullness/swelling of the ear, impaired hearing, sensitivity to sound, and irritation/itching of the ear. They also answered a standardized questionnaire regarding temporomandibular pain and/or dysfunction, and classified their degree of TMD symptoms on a five-point verbal scale and a visual analogue scale...

BACKGROUND: in the treatment of early osteoartrosis, analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are frequently used to relieve pain. Currently, platelet rich plasma is used as an alternative in the treatment of osteoartrosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of platelet rich plasma compared to paracetamol as a treatment for patients with knee osteoartrosis grade I. METHODS: we evaluated 42 patients who were randomized into two groups. Group one was treated with 5 mL of platelet rich plasma in two applications, while group two was treated with 1 gr of oral paracetamol every 8 hours for 30 days...

OBJECTIVE: to determine the clinical typology of osteoartrosis (OA) and its association with chronic diseases. METHODS: A cross-sectional study of 101 patients diagnosed with OA according to criteria of American College of Rheumatology types of OA was done. Sociodemographical variables, nutritional variables, medical attention and associate chronic pathologies were measured. RESULTS: up to 68.3 % of the 60-year-old population presented some type of OA with significant differences for women (p = 0...

The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of Hylan G-F 20 on experimentally induced osteoarthritic changes in rabbit temporomandibular joint (TMJ). A 3mg/ml concentration of sodium mono iodoacetate (MIA) had been injected into both joints of 24 rabbits to create osteoartrosis. The study group was injected with Hylan G-F 20 in one joint and saline in the contralateral joint as a control (once a week for 3 weeks). Histological changes in articular cartilage, osteochondral junction, chondrocyte appearance and subchondral bone were determined at 4, 6, and 8 weeks...

It was established in the previous studies that quercetin prevented the development and caused faster regression of ulcers, petechia and anabroses in rats, which were induced by diclofenac taking. In the group of patients taking diclofenac together with quercetin, the ulcers and dyspeptic events were less found. The application of quercetin normalizes the function and metabolism of cartilage tissue of rabbits with an experimental osteoarthrosis and in patients with osteoartrosis. Quantum-chemical properties of molecule quercetin were studied using the methods of molecular mechanics MM+ and ab initio 6-31G*, and also semiempirical method...

Introduction Osteoartrosis is a genetically determined disease, which develops on multisystem diseases, spreads on joint cartilage, overcartilage bone and soft structure of the joint. The aim of the work is to evaluate the relationship between mineral density of spinal vertebrae and the concentration of basic progesterone and progesterone after a test with metoklopramid.. Material and methods. The research was based on 50 women, aged 50,7+/-4,4 , in an early physiological postmenopausal period, divided into two groups, the control and the exam group, depending on mineral density of spinal vertebrae...
